Interventional therapies for the chronic pain in degenerative spine conditions

Cover Page

Abstract

Back pain due to degenerative spine conditions is one of the most common causes for seeking medical care. Standard pharmaceutical and physiotherapy interventions are offered to manage the pain. However, those approaches can be insufficient, and interventional therapies may be used in addition to standard treatment. The main principle of the interventional therapy is administering the medication directly to the affected part of the spinal segment. The article reviews the main interventional techniques, their indications, and differences between them.
